Setting up SSL on a Domino® server

Set up SSL on a Domino® server so that clients and servers that connect to the server use SSL to ensure privacy and authentication on the network. You set up SSL on a protocol-by-protocol basis. For example, you can enable SSL for mail protocols -- such as IMAP, POP3, and SMTP -- and not for other protocols.


  1. Generate a keyring file with a self-signed or third-party certficate.
  2. Configure the port for SSL.
  3. If you are using client authentication, add the client's name to database ACLs and access lists for design elements.
